POLS 4210: Politics of Development (3)
Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0
This course explores the political, economic, and social challenges of Third World development. It covers a wide range of contemporary issues affecting developing countries, and focuses especially on policies aimed at reducing poverty and underdevelopment. In a world where 840 million people are malnourished, where nearly 1.3 billion people live on less than a dollar per day, and where dozens of countries constitute 'failed states,' the development challenges faced by the Third World are unquestionably one of the most important concerns of our time.
